at the nymex. we have a nice little rally. if you're long, it's looking pretty good. nymex leading the energy complex. we had the contract here go above $91. that's a two-month high for the current contract. partly we've seen a little bit of a weakening of the dollar. that has certainly helped commodities. also optimism about the fact they're getting back to work in washington to try to avert the year-end fiscal cliff situation. meantime, one of the things that's interesting is how wti nymex has performed. year-to-date it has been the worst performer with regard to its loss versus a gain on the benchmark now for the global crude of brent. because we continue to see a glut here in the u.s. of oil that's produced, and unable to get out to the rest of the market, to the global market, because of a lack of infrastructure. in fact, that brent premium for a second year has topped $15 on average for the year. we're close to $20 here. nat gas also getting a bit of a boost today. the near term forecast certainly chilly. you can see that with all of that snow that's headed towards the east coast from t

the government spends money on. the treasury, defense department, energy department. all of these things here. and right back there on the score board you see the fundamental problem. last year we took in $2.3 trillion in revenue but spent $3.6 trillion. and this whole process has been aimed at dealing with that deficit. because neither party could really come up with a decision on what they were going to agree on on what to cut spending. what they said is if we don't have a deal by january 2nd, sequestration will set in. what is that? that's essentially a 10% cut across the board to everything out here and everyone has to deal with it the best way they can. now, i want to point out something here. there's a big difference in the size of these departments. for example, housing or personnel or energy are really quite small. you can cut them dramatically and not have nearly the impact you would have as if you hit bigger departments. some of these programs are also somewhat protected by law. sop they can't all be hit the same way. and the truth is a lot of people aren't sure what the result will
